PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis., Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Mueller Sports Medicine, a trusted leader in sports medicine for more than 60 years, has introduced the Mueller® Adjustable Posture Corrector product targeted for not only athletes, but for people working from home, to help improve their posture.
Because many people who are working from home are ordinarily in an ergonomically designed office, the home workspace may include a less comfortable setup – poor chair support and a position of the laptop below eye level. This can lead to bad posture and an aching back and shoulders due to additional stress placed on joints and muscles.
While some people have invested in new technology to help them work from home, they may not be taking advantage of something simple that will benefit their own health – the Mueller® Adjustable Posture Corrector.
"A posture product can improve overall health," said John Cayer, President of Mueller Sports Medicine. "With upright posture, I feel more alert, feel more energized and have a higher level of brain activity. For less than $20, the Mueller® Adjustable Posture Corrector can help manage poor posture – whether it is used while sitting in front of a computer for work or doing everyday activities."
The Mueller® Adjustable Posture Corrector provides moderate support to the upper back and can be used for a variety of activities where people might experience pain in the neck and shoulders.
The adjustable straps easily fold under the arms and have increased padding to make the posture corrector much more comfortable than most posture braces. A mix of stretch and non-stretch materials provides the right combination of comfort and support as stretch materials provide a gentle reminder to improve posture and straighten up when slouching. The non-stretch straps are padded to ensure comfort while providing more rigid support to the upper back.
Made for both women and men, it is lightweight and breathable so it can be worn throughout any daily activity. The slim construction allows it to be worn discreetly under or over clothing.
"While support braces are typically designed for athletes, they are also very effective for other activities, especially repetitive use actions," added Cayer. "The Mueller® Adjustable Posture Corrector can be beneficial for a number of people who experience issues with back or shoulder discomfort."
The Mueller Sports Medicine Posture Corrector (https://muellersportsmed.wistia.com/medias/eti55p02h6) can be found at U.S. retailers, including Amazon, Walmart.com, Walgreens and others.
